In 2023 Czech broadcaster Ceska Televize made history by broadcasting ESCZ live on TV for the first time. That resulted in Vesna going to Liverpool with their song “My Sister’s Crown,” which earned the country its second-ever Top 10 result.

Now CT is ready to do it all over again. On Monday afternoon they officially opened the song submission process for ESCZ 2024. The submission window closes on November 6, which some of you will also know as Conchita Wurst’s birthday.

Their official press release is pasted in full below.

ESCZ 2024: Czechia confirms live national final (PRESS RELEASE)

With the immense success of Vesna’s performance at Eurovision 2023, and that top 10 result. Ceska Televize is determined to continue the tradition of excellence and push the boundaries of the Czech musical scene as we embark on this new season, we are calling for all the talented musicians to step forward and join us in this exciting experience.

Czechia’s journey to Eurovision 2024 begins now, and artists are encouraged to submit their entries to the ESCZ Song Reception.

Here are the submission criteria:

From now until the 6th of November at, 23:59 CET, it will be possible to submit songs via a form on the official Eurovision website at Ceska Televize. Ceskatelevize.cz/eurovize

– Songs can be in the form of a demo, a final master is not necessary at this stage.

– Submitted tracks must not have been published or publicly presented in any form before 1.9.2023. If a submitted track has been published or publicly presented before this date, it will be automatically disqualified.

– Multiple submissions from a single artist are allowed.

– The lead singer, i.e. the main vocalist of the song, from this year’s edition does not have to be only a holder of Czech citizenship – now also artists from Slovakia who permanently live and work in the Czech Republic and contribute to the development of the Czech music scene can participate in the competition.

In the case of a duet, at least one of the main vocalists must meet this condition.

Note: Czech Television reserves the right to cancel the competition if the Czechia is unable to participate in ESC 2024 for any reason.

ESCZ will be broadcasted LIVE once again and more details will be shared in the upcoming weeks. The voting rules for the national selection ESCZ will be published in November.

Sad that it’s live. I would prefer a 17 minute delay.
The crowd would get a phone ban, but get to know the winner before rest of the WORLD!

I’d like Marketa back. Perhaps she can bring Glen Hansard with her this time, they have been working together in the past year. Alternately, she could go to Ireland which would make that three countries for her in three years.

Great to hear! Their NF fields are tiny but strong.

REALLY hope Pam Rabbit returns and wins next year. Her song ‘Ghosting’ was my favourite to win for 2023 and I think it still holds up well, with me listening to it quite frequently. She has the potential to give the Czechs a good result with her live vocals and fighting attitude! It would also be good because she is part Armenian and representing that part of the world is well-sort after due to the Azerbaijan conflict!

Not gonna lie– there are lots of acts from the last five years that I’d like to see return, but I also hope for Pam most of all. She’s pretty close to my ideal modern pop star.

Just dropping back in to note that Pam released a good album today– though most of the best songs were initially released before September 1st.

What does “well sort after” mean? Actual question, I’m not trying to be snotty. Do you mean “sought” after? You English and your non-rhotic pronunciations can be confusing.

Great news from Czechia!! It’s amazing to see how they managed to improve their results. A low key small-ish selection in their studios is just plenty and delightful <3

Good for Czechia! I’m happy to see them back! Now we are waiting for Armenia (likely), Australia (hopefully) and Romania (uncertain, but hopefully).

National final is always to prefer, at least then the people have some influence over the choice. And seeing how 4 of the top 5 entries this year were chosen in national final, I think next year will have more of them..

Maybe it’s because Mirai is so popular that they would won the czech televote no matter what song they would send. They’re good, but they should win because of great song, not just because they’re popular.
